At the risk of sounding completely dumb and non-responsive, I strongly  
suggest reading the postgres documentation which includes a tutorial.   
I also find SQL Cookbook by Molinaro to an extremely useful reference.

The power of postgres is contained in no small part by its strong  
regular expression features.  For that I recommend the "bible"  
Friedl's Regular Expression book from O'Reilly.  The study of regular  
expressions rewards 10-fold every moment it consumes.

73,

John
